TIBBIT JESTER


   
"My Gods you're fat.  Are all kings this fat?  How long has it been since you've seen your feet?"

Societal outcasts and secondary citizens of all kinds sometimes find gainful employment as Court Jesters.  This includes the Tibbits if they are frowned upon in some areas.  And some of those Tibbits intend in getting a little of their own back for their people.

BECOMING A TIBBIT JESTER
A few levels of Jester and Cat Burglar and you're all set.

   Class Abilities:  Kitty Form, Jesters Performance (Taunt)
   Saves: Base Reflex Save +6

Class Skills
 The Tibbit Jester's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Escape Artist (Dex), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Local, Nobility) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Perform (Cha), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Sleight of Hand (Dex), Spot (Wis), Tumble (Dex), and Use Magic Device (Cha)

Weapon Proficiencies: Tibbit Jesters gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Kitteh Magic:  When a Tibbit Jester becomes capable of casting spells of a new level he can choose 1 spell from the following list.  He may cast 1 extra spell per level per day from this list.  For example Muffins can cast up to third level spells.  He can choose 1 first, 1 second, and 1 third level spell from the following list each day to cast.  He may not use his regular spell slots to cast these spells, nor may he use these slots to cast spells from the Jester spell list.

Insult Comic (Su): Your Jester and Tibbit Jester levels stack for determining what abilities you have with your Jester's Performance.

Enrage Audience (Su): A number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier you may use your Jester's Performance ability on all opponents within a 30' radius.

PLAYING A TIBBIT JESTER
Your a big dumb silly kitty.  At least that's what you want your employers to think.  You excel at being thought of as a fool in order to make people underestimate you. After all if you're a nobody and too stupid to be believed by anyone, people don't watch what they say around you...
 Combat: You aren't much of a fighter, but you are a talker.  Hide behind your allies and insult your enemies into a distractive frenzy before running away.  Your allies can use the exercise, you could use some fun, and your enemies need killing.  Everyone gets a little something...
 Advancement: Most Jester's advance down the same path, becoming ever more sarcastic.  You intend to bring mean to new heights (or lows depending on your point of view).
Resources: You have the Guild, possibly the local Tibbit population, and the Jesters schools you can rely upon.

TIBBIT JESTERS IN THE WORLD
"So let me get this straight...you aren't just a cat?"
"Yup."
"Your actually an international crime lord who looks like a cat?"
"Yup."
"You just moonlight as a Fool for cover?"
"Yup."
"And you've been pooping in my slippers just because?"
"Yup."
"I'm going to have to shoot you now."
You don't think much of the rich and beautiful.  You were raised to hate them, and since meeting them, most of them haven't done much to change your mind.  You feel little guilt about betraying them and stealing from them.
 Daily Life: Your daily life consists of entertaining the fattened rich, and incidentally spying on them and their guests.  Being publicly thought of as a fool means people don't watch what they say or do in front of you because they think you're of little consequence.  So you pretty much know all their bad stuff.
 Notables: Silent But Deadly (CE Male Tibbit Cat Burglar 1/Jester 5/Tibbit Jester 6) is the Jester of an evil king.  He is used to humiliate the King's guests (and unbeknownst to all is also stealing from his employer).  Furball (CG Male Tibbit Cat Burglar 1/Jester 5/Tibbit Jester 6) is also the Jester of an Evil King, but he works to bring about the Kings downfall.
 Organizations: Tibbit Jesters have only the Cat Burglar Guilds.  There are training schools in existence that they can sometimes rely upon as well.  Jester friends are always good to have.

NPC Reaction
NPC's usually just think of the Tibbit Jester's as simple (but occasionally controversial) entertainers.  No one suspects they are spies for the Guilds.

TIBBIT JESTERS IN THE GAME
Tibbit Jester's generally tie the group to a city, as they are employed as professional jester's to entertain the nobility (and are usually tied to a specific noble).  So unless the Jester's public employer travels a lot neither will the group.
 Adaptation: This particular class can be used in a non silly campaign if Tibbit's are a race in your world.  Particularly if it's espionage oriented.
 Encounters: PC's will usually encounter members of this class doing their job as Court Jesters (i.e. spies for the Cat Burglar Guilds).

Sample Encounter
EL 12: The local King is a butthead.  The PC's have gotten a temporary job in his court, but have since discovered he puts the thumbscrews to random people at a whim.  And his freaky little cat Jester is a pain in the butt too...

TIBBIT SKIRMISHER


   
"Tibbit's Rule!"

 Tibbit Skirmishers are packs of backup fighters who hound and confuse their quarry while the Sons of Pinky finish them off.  They're also professional bastards.  Pranks, general weirdness, and drunken bets are common for the Skirmishers.

BECOMING A TIBBIT SKIRMISHER
Normally Tibbits multiclass as a Scout for a few levels before becoming a Tibbit Skirmisher.  The Cat Burglar Guilds provide the necessary training.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Race: Tibbit
   Class Features:  Tibbit's Rule!, Skirmish +1d6
   Feats:  Combat Expertise, Improved Trip, Mouser
   Skills: Bluff 6 ranks, Hide 6 ranks, and Tumble 6 ranks.


Class Skills
 The Tibbit Skirmisher's  class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Escape Artist (Dex), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Local)(Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Cha), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), and Tumble (Dex)
Skills Points at Each  Level :  6 + int

Hit Dice: d6

Code: [Select]
[b]   BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities[/b]
1. +0    +0     +2     +0    Skirmisher Feat
2. +1    +0     +3     +0    Dodger (+2)
3. +2    +1     +3     +1    Comin' Thru!
4. +3    +1     +4     +1    Skirmisher Feat
5. +3    +1     +4     +1    Dodger (+4)
6. +4    +2     +5     +2    Mine!!
7. +5    +2     +5     +2    Skirmisher Feat
8. +6    +2     +6     +2    Dodger (+6)
9. +6    +3     +6     +3    Scratch 'Em While  Their Down
10.+7    +3     +7     +3    Master Skirmisher

Weapon Proficiencies: Tibbit Skirmishers gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Dodger (Ex): At 1st level you gain a +2 Dodge Bonus to Armor Class while in Kitty Form.  This stacks with all other Dodge bonuses such as the Dodge Feat.  It increases to +4 at level 4, and to +6 at level 8.

Skirmisher Feats (Ex): At 2nd, 5th, 7th, and 10th level the Tibbit Skirmisher gets a Bonus Feat from the following list: Acrobatic Strike, Adaptable Flanker, Alley Cat, Always Underfoot, Clever Wrestling, Close Quarters Fighting, Combat Expertise, Combat Panache, Confound The Big Folk, Cunning Evasion, Defensive Strike, Deadly Defense, Deft Opportunist, Deft Strike, Distracting Attack, Elusive Target, Eyes in the Back of Your Head, Expeditious Dodge, Expert Tactician, Fleet of Foot, Giantbane, Goad, Greater Kiai Shout, Hamstring, Hindering Opportunist, Improved Feint, Improved Combat Expertise, Improved Disarm, Improved Skirmish, Intimidating Strike, Kiai Shout, Lunging Strike, Melee Evasion, Shadow Striker, Stalwart Defense, Swarmfighting, Telling Blow, Tumbling Feint, Underfoot Combat, Vexing Flanker, Wolf Pack.

Comin' Thru! (Ex): When making a charge attack in Kitty Form you may make a Trip attack against everyone whose space you enter.  If a Trip attack fails you must stop where you are.  You receive the benefits of your Improved Trip  and Always Underfoot Feats for each Trip attempt. You cannot make more than 3 Trip attempts per charge, and only one trip attempt per creature.

Mine!! (Ex): This ability works exactly like Spring Attack except you make a Disarm attempt instead of an attack action. When using Mine!! you also benefit from any feat or ability that improves disarm attempts, such as Improved Disarm. If you succeed at your Disarm attempt, you are now holding the target item in your mouth (or hand if not in Kitty Form).

Scratch 'Em While Their Down (Ex): When you attack a prone character you get a competence bonus to your to hit and damage rolls equal to your Charisma bonus.

Master SKirmisher (Su):  At 10th level the Tibbit Skirmisher masters the art of the scamper.  When he performs an attack while using his Skirmish ability and his opponent is Denied his Dex Bonus to AC, he automatically gets a Trip attempt as a Free Action without provoking an attack of opportunity.  There is no opposed roll and the Trip is automatically successful.



PLAYING A TIBBIT SKIRMISHER
Design yourself around a specific Feat tree in order to specialize in some area, especially if there are several people in the group playing Skirmishers.   Maybe you make people easier to flank, or easier to hit, or are distracting. 
 Combat: You are designed to be an annoyance.  You are a tactical fighter who helps set up things for your buddies.  You aren't a frontline tank.  You do your best to avoid getting hit while tripping up your enemies, causing them to be flanked, or sowing confusion.
 Advancement: Tibbit Skirmishers can specialize in one of several paths depending on what Feats they take.  Try to see what your party will need the most and go for that area of expertise.
Resources: The Cat Burglar Guilds of course.  The greatest resource in the world :D

TIBBIT SKIRMISHERS IN THE WORLD
"_______ Cats!  Knocked my feet out from under me and ran of with my jewelry! There outta be a law against em!"
 You are the most lovable cat in the world until it's business time.  Then you are the least lovable cat in the world.  But at least you get to have fun.
 Daily Life: You spend your day patrolling the Guilds bases, or escorting teams who go out on missions. It's your job to make sure things go smoothly when the fur starts to fly.
 Notables: Current notable Tibbit Skirmishers include The Magnificent Farting Bastard (Tibbbit, CN, Cat Burglar 2/Scout 4/Tibbit SKirmisher 6).  No one exemplifies the ruthlessly mocking nature of this class more than he has, and he stands out above all other Tibbit Skirmishers as the most famous (and most hated) of his kind.  Even Kender are more loved than he.  Known only by his pseudonym, even by his Guild.
 Organizations: Every Cat Burglar Guild has Tibbit Skirmishers.  Without exception.  One or two of the most dreaded Guilds is composed primarily of members of this prestige class.

NPC Reaction
 People hate Tibbit Skirmishers.  You trip them up, steal their stuff, and disappear before they can get to you.  No one likes a winner baby.  Especially when they win as hard as you do.

TIBBIT SKIRMISHER IN THE GAME
 Tibbit Skirmishers are support, and are best used to round out the party if the major roles are already taken.
 Adaptation: Much like the Cat Burglar class, this is probably a humorous setting only.
 Encounters: PC's will probably encounter Tibbit Skirmishers if they ever raid a Cat Burglar Guild.  Once the alarm is sounded Skirmishers will delay them till the heavy hitters can get there, and then act as backup when the Sons of Pinky charge to the fore.

Sample Encounter
EL 12: You awaken in the night as a foul stench descends upon you.  You see a small cat perched on your face.  He has apparently broken wind.  He calls you several names best left unprinted and bounds out the open window.  Getting up you stumble about in confusion and find that your armor smells like cat pee.  Eventually finding some decent clothes you run outside but he is gone.  Arriving back at your room you realize so is your money...

TRICKSTER


   
"Of course Ogres are repelled by Ice Cream.  Everyone knows this.  Everyone."

 A trickster is a Cat Burglar who has become inspired by the old "Puss in Boots" fairy tale.  They specialize in outwitting opponents as opposed to outfighting them.  Their purpose is to become powers behind the throne by helping gullible people achieve power and being their only reliable and trusted adviser.

BECOMING A TRICKSTER
Most Tricksters begin as Cat Burglar/Swashbucklers who drift into this class.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Class Abilities:  Kitty Form, Insightful Strike
   Feats:  Daring Fuzzball, Jibba Jabba, Leadership (must take a cohort)
   Skill Tricks:  Must have at least 2 skill tricks (see Complete Scoundrel)
   Skills:  Bluff 8 ranks, Diplomacy 8 ranks, Gather Information 4 ranks, Sense Motive 8 ranks
   Special:  Must have acquired either a Collar or Bag of Holding and a pair of magical boots, preferably without paying for it.


Class Skills
 The Trickster's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Appraise (Int), Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Diplomacy (Cha), Disable Device (Int), Disguise Cha), Escape Artist (Dex), Forgery (Int), Gather Information (Cha), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Local, Nobility)(Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Open Lock (Dex), Perform (Cha), Ride (Dex, Search (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Sleight of Hand (Dex), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), Tumble (Dex), and Use Magic Device (Cha).

Wisdom of the Cat (Ex): You may always take 10 on Search, Sense Motive, and Survival Checks. 

Master Trickster (Su):  You have refined a skill to the point of having supernatural abilities with it.  Choose any three skills you have at least 12 ranks in from the following list: Balance, Bluff, Diplomacy, Disguise, Gather Information, Hide, Intimidate, Jump, Listen, Move Silently, Sense Motive, Spot, or Tumble.  You may always Take 10 on those three skills, and any Skill Trick that has ranks in one of those skills as a prerequisite may be used freely instead of once per encounter.

PLAYING A TRICKSTER
 People are gullible at best, and even the most cynical one has a chink in their mental armor you can exploit.  The best way to win a fight is to convince an opponent that you are is friend.  Failing that if you can convince him to kill himself you wont have to make the physical effort to do so.  If you can win fame and fortune by doing so even better.
 Combat: Tricksters prefer to avoid combat, and rely on their wits and agility if forced into it.  Most will lead their opponent into a trap of some sort rather than slug it out.
 Advancement: Tricksters prefer to advance some catspaw (i.e. your cohort) that seems gullible and naive.  By using him as a figurehead it throws of the opposition who almost immediately underestimate what he and his 'pet kitty' can do.
Resources: Tricksters usually have the wealth they bestow on patrons (i.e. your cohort who foolishly believes himself to be in charge) by helping them increase their social station to draw upon.  Some have financed minor revolutions by putting a goober into power, and making all the hard decisions for him.

TRICKSTERS IN THE WORLD
"How much would you charge to kill the pet cat of the Marquis de Carabas?"
 People either love or hate you, and which tendency they pursue is based on whether or not you've somehow screwed them over on your way to the top.  Of course if you have any common sense you'll have done away with all the people you screwed over on your rise to the top, as well as their close relatives who may be revenge minded.  Always remember to think ahead.
 Daily Life: Your daily activities are based around promoting your "patron", whether thinking up new schemes or taking action on those you've already conceived.
 Notables: The Master Cat (CN Male Awakened Cat Cat Burglar 1/Swashbuckler5/Trickster 6) is the originator of this particular form of Cat Burglary.  Lucian Montoya (CN Human Male Cat Burglar 1/Swashbuckler 5/Trickster 6) was his first human apprentice.
 Organizations: The Tricksters tend to be loners, and ex members of Cat Burglar Guilds.  Due to this they have no organization behind them, although some end up heading one.

NPC Reaction
 The lower classes tend to love you because you spend much time sticking it to the pompous nobility and violent criminals.  The Nobility and violent criminals would like to make you into a hat.

TRICKSTERS IN THE GAME
 This class might tend to attract showboats.  Make sure they don't take over the campaign.
 Adaptation: This is definitely meant for silly campaigns, although it could see use in a serious campaign with some rewording of the fluff.
 Encounters: Tricksters tend to be encountered on errands for their "Master", or at his side giving council.

Sample Encounter
EL 12: The PC's have been asked to track down and bring in the Marquis de Carabas, and his cat.  God alone knows why they keep mentioning the cat but they're very specific.  It's almost as if they're more afraid of the cat than the Marquis.  Not that you can blame them.  Looking at him he doesn't seem to be much.  He even urinated himself at the site of the parties barbarian...

Mow:"There's a vampire at the church door screaming to be let in so he can gain vengeance.  What the hell have you done now?"
Patches:"You member that crypt we hadda clear out? Well I hadda use the litterbox while we were there, and there was this stone sarcophagus fulla sand..."
Mow:"Ohmygod you pooped in the vampire lords coffin!"
Patches:"Well it ain't like I did it on purpose!"

Since many guilds have little religious representation, they needed Healers, and you fit the bill.  Your also a good defense against those pesky undead....

BECOMING A VET
Levels in cat burglar and any class capable of healing will suffice.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Class Features:  Kitty Form, must be able to cast 2nd level spells from the Healing subschool as Divine Magic.
   Feats:  Jibba Jabba
   Skills:  Heal 8 Ranks, Sense Motive 8 Ranks
   

Class Skills
 The Vets class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Bluff (Cha), Concentration (Con), Diplomacy (Cha), Gather Information (Cha), Heal (Wis), Knowledge (Geography, Local, Nobility and Royalty, and Religion), Perform (Cha), and Sense Motive (Wis).
Skills Points at Each  Level : 4 + int

Hit Dice: d6

   BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities

10.+5    +3     +3     +7    Kitty Wuvs the Lichlord +1 level of existing Divine spellcasting class


Weapon Proficiencies: Vets gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Holy Kitty Aura (Su): At 1st level you can use your Aura a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier.  Light shines from you in a 10' radius for 3 rounds plus 1 round per point of Charisma modifier.  The Aura has the effects of  Daylight and Protection from Evil spells within its area.

At 4th level the Aura also grants you the effects of a Sanctuary spell (Willpower Save is 10 plus half hit dice plus Charisma modifier).

At 8th level the Aura also grants you the effects of a Holy Aura spell, but it effects you only.

Caster level for these effects is equal to your Effective Character Level.

Divine Feats: A 2nd, 5th, and 7th level you may choose a Bonus Feat from this list: Augment Healing, Consecrate Spell, Daunting Presence, Divine Accuracy, Divine Metamagic, Divine Spellpower, Domain Focus, Empower Turning, Enduring Life, Extra Domain, Font of Life, Force of Personality, Heighten Turning, Imbued Healing, Intuitive Attack, Iron Will, Lasting Life, Mitigate Suffering, Quicken Turning, Sacred Boost, Sacred Healing, Sacred Vengeance, Sacred Vitality, Spell Focus (Good), Spiritual Counter,  Spontaneous Healer, Spurn Deaths Touch, Touch of Healing, True Believer, Unnatural Will, or any Aura or Halo Feat.

Kitty Wuvs the Lichlord (Su): Once per week you can make a touch attack against an undead creature, who then gets a Willpower Save (DC is 10 plus half your hit dice plus your Charisma modifier) if you succeed.  If he succeeds he takes 1 point of positive energy damage per hit die you have.  If he fails  he is now alive again in a manner similar to a Resurrection spell, except damage that you have done to him in previous rounds is still there.  He is also stunned for 1d6 rounds. Intelligent undead really hate this.  Most mindless undead just end up being confused naked guys. On the odd chance you cast the spell on an Undead that has no discernable form (i.e. may never have been alive or you aren't sure what it is), it becomes a living member of any race that has no Level Adjustment, with levels in Commoner equal to it's current Hit Dice. Otherwise it's up to the poor battered DM to determine who this goob was in a former life and write up his character sheet (but hey he might just get some ideas for plot hooks from this).
 
PLAYING A VET
YOU ARE HOLY KITTY!!!!!! Play it up for all your worth.  You're either the Guilds personal physician, or you've gone rogue perhaps and bill yourself as the magical healing kitty...
 Combat: Unless there are undead around, your better off staying out of fights and relying on your Holy Kitty Aura.  After all you're a Holy kitty.  You aren't supposed to encourage fighting.  Peace among all sentient beings and all that other crap.
 Advancement: You are the traditional healer/buffer type.  However you can probably use your powers to gain vast political power if you put your mind to it...
Resources: You can call on the Cat Burglars Guild of course, other Vets especially.  And to some extent you can also count on other churches, and people you have helped.

VETS IN THE WORLD
"Fluffy laid her paw upon me and my gout disappeared! Hallelujah!!"
You do quite well for yourself.  Everyone likes the healer.  Especially cuddly, fluffy ones.  After all you take care of their kids when they get sick.
 Daily Life: Much of your day is spent addressing peoples health issues.  Sometimes you get to go on adventures and give the Undead huggies though..
 Notables: Dark Foofies (CE Male Human Cleric 3/Cat Burglar 3/Vet 6) runs a local criminal organizations disguised as a charitable enterprise.  Sheba (CG Female Human Healer 3/Cat Burglar 3/Vet 6) is a well known local figure who provides healing for the sick and poor, as well as assistance with the naughty zombies who sometimes show up.
 Organizations: The Paws of Sister Francine is an organization of Vets dedicated to helping the poor.  They give free healing and ask for food donations.  It's hard to resist the big brown eye look...

NPC Reaction
Most NPC's love vets.  Some would elect them Pope if they could.

VETS IN THE GAME
Vets won't likely steal Clerics thunder as religious figures, but they might win some popularity contests and get some political clout.
 Adaptation: This one is definitely for the silly campaign....
 Encounters: PC's will likely encounter Vets after being hurt, or if they invade a Guild and do some damage.  They may also encounter them aiding the poor.

Sample Encounter
EL 12: The PC's limp into town wounded, when they notice a small crowd.  A small cat is healing the local townsfolk of their afflictions.  Her owners agree to help the PC's, but would like to ask them a teeensy favor that in no possible way may end up in their death or dismemberment.  Really, they swear.

WATCHCAT


   
"Sleep? Whoneedssleepihavecoffeehahahahahahaha!"

You protect the Guild or whoever you are assigned to guard by keeping watch and sounding the alarm.  You also get to scare the dog poop out of people.

BECOMING A WATCHCAT
6 levels of Cat Burglar will do you, but you can also multiclass out into Ninja, Rogue, or Scout.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Class Abilities: Kitty Form, Enhanced Kitty Form (Watchcat), Kitty Magic (Hep Meeee!)
   Skills:  Listen 8 Ranks, Sense Motive 8 Ranks, Spot 8 Ranks
   Feats:  Peekaboo

 The Watchcats class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Bluff (Cha), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), and Spot (Wis)
Skills Points at Each  Level : 4 + int

Hit Dice: d6

Code: [Select]
[b]   BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities[/b]
1. +0    +0     +2     +2    Improved Watchcat Form
2. +1    +0     +3     +3    Yowl (100'), Sleep Optional (+4)
3. +2    +1     +3     +3    Occupational Specialty
4. +3    +1     +4     +4    Improved Watchcat Form
5. +3    +1     +4     +4    Yowl (500'), Sleep Optional (+6)
6. +4    +2     +5     +5    Occupational Specialty
7. +5    +2     +5     +5    Improved Watchcat Form
8. +6    +2     +6     +6    Yowl (1 Mile), Sleep Optional (Immunity)
9. +6    +3     +6     +6    Occupational Specialty
10.+7    +3     +7     +7    I SEE ALL

Weapon Proficiencies: Watchcats gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Improved Watchcat Form (Ex): At 1st Level while in Watchcat Form, your Dark Vision is now 90'

At 4th level you may see in Darkness, magical or otherwise, as though it were daylight.

At 7th level the spell True Seeing is permanently in effect on your person (this is a Supernatural Ability).

Yowl (Su):You may let out a screech for help as a Standard Action.  Anyone in range with levels in Cat Burglar immediately knows your exact location and will hurry there if they can. Range at 2nd level is 100'.  This increases to 500' at 5th level, and 1 Mile at 8th level.  This effect is mental as well as verbal, so even deaf Cat Burglars respond.

Occupational Specialty (Ex): At levels 3, 6, and 9 you gain an ability based on your occupational specialty.  You may choose from Bouncer, Security, or Voyeur.  You gain a spell at each level that you cast as a Supernatural ability 3/day.

Bouncer: Level 3: Fear, Level 6: Imperious Glare, Level 9: Evil Glare

Security: Level 3: Summon Feline IV, Level 6: Summon Feline VI, Level 9: Summon Feline VII

Voyeur: Level 3: Scrying, Level 6: Interplanar Telepathic Bond, Level 9: Greater Scrying

Sleep Optional (Ex): At 2nd level you gain +4 on Saving Throws against all sleep effects, and only require 4 hours of sleep a night.

At 5th level the bonus increases to +6, and you only need 2 hours of sleep a night.

At 8th level you are immune to sleep effects, and do not require sleep.

I SEE ALL (Su): You are now immune to flanking and Blindness.  You do not take penalties to Spot/Search checks due to murky water, bright light, fog, etc.  You also gain a +4 Bonus on all Saving Throws against Gaze Attacks.  It's like you have little kitty mirror shades.
 
PLAYING A WATCHCAT
You are designed more than anything to be an early warning system and help summoner.  You also scare off the beggars and local street life.
 Combat: Unless you have the Hep Meee!! Feats to summon help, stay out of the way once the fighting starts.  You aren't really made for it.  Your the guy who calls people to do the fighting, not a participant.
 Advancement: Watchcats tend to either be watchers, summoners, or scarers.  Sometimes they will try to branch out, but usually they specialize.
Resources: In a way you are a resource.  You are the trusted early warning system of the Cat Burglar Guilds, and they make sure to pamper you.

WATCHCATS IN THE WORLD
Ralph:"Look at 'im! Evry day they sat there starin'! Starin inta mah soul! Why do they keep starin'!"
Ed: "Uh..well you are naked urinating in the street while swinging a dead pigeon..."
Ralph: "Well yeah, but everyone does that don't they?"
Your interaction with the world usually consists of "Halt, who goes there?"
Ed: "Lemme think before I answer that."
 Daily Life: You get up, make coffee, go to work, drink more coffee, at some point you may actually sleep.  Then it's more coffee....
 Notables: Hellen Stovebottom (N Female Dwarf Cat Burglar 6/Watchcat 6 is a squad leader of the Watchcats in her local Guild.  Yuri Naps-On-Roofs (CN Human Female Ninja 3/Cat Burglar 3/Watchcat 3) doubles as a saboteur sometimes in her Guild.
 Organizations: The Watchcats are almost a Guild unto themselves, and your fellow Watchcats may help you even against other Guild members if it came down to it.
NPC Reaction
You scare the crap out of most NPC's.  Nothing says 'stay away' like a building with a dozen silently staring cats outside...

WATCHCATS IN THE GAME
This class will make Guilds pretty darn hard to ambush so be careful about using it.
 Adaptation: Again, this one might fit into something other than a silly campaign with a little  modification.
 Encounters: Most PC's will encounter you as someones personal bodyguard, or as the watch at the local Cat Burglar Guild.

Sample Encounter
EL 12: You spend the day preparing to enter a local house believed to be run by a Thieve's Guild.  All is well until Bob tries to sneak into the yard and one of the housecats lets out a howl of the damned that freezes you down to your soul and will be remembered in your nightmares for all eternity.  Or at least that's the excuse you'll give for pooping yourself on the raid anyway...

This next class was originally an Epic PrC, but many people said it should be a regular PrC, and the Nekomata the Epic, so I'm gonna give that a shot:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bakeneko

BAKENEKO


   
"He who plays with a cat must bear its scratches."

 Bakeneko are awakened Cats who develop a taste for magic power.  Unfortunately they also have a taste for mayhem, and they tend to give cats a bad name wherever they end up.  This has cause many Cat Burglar Guilds to kick them out.

BECOMING A BAKENEKO
Most Bakeneko are Awakened Cats who start as Cat Burglars and become Sorcerers.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Race:  Awakened Cat or Mows
   Class Abilities:  Humanoid Form
   Spells:  Must be able to cast 2nd level Arcane Spells without preparation
   Skills:  Knowledge (Arcane) 6 ranks, Spellcraft 6 ranks
   Feats:  Eschew Materials, Silent Spell, Still Spell
   Alignment: Can't be Good or Lawful

Class Skills
 The Bakeneko's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Disguise (Cha), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (Arcana, Local)(Int), Listen (Wis), Lucid Dreaming (see Manual of the Planes, Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Spellcraft (Int), and Spot (Wis).
Skills Points at Each  Level : 4 + int

10.+5    +3     +3     +7    Animation, +1 Level of Arcane Casting Class


Weapon Proficiencies: A Bakeneko gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Kitty Form: At 1st level the Bakeneko's size in it's regular form is now Small.  Claw damage increases to 1d3, and Bite damage becomes 1d4.  Strength is permanently increased +4, while Dex is permanently decreased by -2.  Stats in humanoid form are now +4 Str, -2 Dex. 

At 4th level the Bakeneko's size in it's regular form is now Medium.  Claw damage increases to 1d4, and Bite damage is 1d6.  Strength is again permanently increased by +4, and Dex is permanently decreased by -2.  Stats in Humanoid Form are the same as in cat form.  You also get a +2 Natural Armor Bonus.

At 7th level Bakeneko can adjust it's size in it's natural cat form as a Swift Action once per round from Tiny to Medium.  It may also walk on its hind legs.

Spookiness (Su): At 2nd level the Bakeneko gains Frightful Presence.  Any living creature whose HD are less than the Bakeneko's within 60' of it must make a Willpower Save (DC is 10 plus 1/2 HD plus Charisma Modifier) or be Shaken for 2d6 rounds.  If they successfully save they are immune to this Bakeneko's Frightful Presence for 24 hours.

At 5th level the Bakeneko can conjure illusionary flames at will as a Standard Action.  These can appear to be flying balls of fire, or any other shape the Bakeneko wishes, or it can simply cover a square with ghostly fire.  Opponents struck by the fireball or who enter the flaming square must make a Willpower Save (DC is 10 plus 1/2 HD plus Charisma Modifier) or take 2d6 damage and be Shaken for the duration of the encounter.  If the Save is successful they are immune to the Bakeneko's illusionary flames for 24 hours.  This is a Pattern Effect.

At 8th level the Bakeneko can enter the dreams of sleeping opponents.  You may cast Nightmare 3/day as a Supernatural Ability.

Devourer (Ex): At 3rd level a Bakeneko can eat anything without harm.  Anything.  Poison, lamp oil, fire, you name it.  So long as it's ingested by them it can do them no harm.  Generally this doesn't benefit you lots other than to mess with people.

Impersonation (Ex): At 6th level the Bakeneko gains a +4 Circumstance Bonus to Bluff and Disguise checks when using their Humanoid Form ability to impersonate a person they know.

Manipulate Reach (Su): As a Swift Action a Bakenkeo can increase it's Reach to 10', or change it back to normal.

Animation (Su): Any dead corpse touched by the Bakeneko (or that spends more than 4 hours within 60' of it) becomes a random form of corporeal undead.  They are not under the Bakeneko's control, but at this level the Bakeneko is automatically considered friendly by Undead who will not attack it unless attacked by the Bakeneko first.  This effect is not controlled by the Bakeneko and happens automatically.
 


PLAYING A BAKENEKO
 People are buttheads.  They think you're a pet or something, they walk all over you, kick you around, and feed you their scraps.   Well screw that.  You aren't taking their crap anymore.  Your gonna eat the good part of the chicken from now on.  And for once you'll be pounding the castles concubines instead of watching the local yard ape grunting away and wondering how they put up with him.  It'll be repulsive of course, but you'll have to do it to keep up the charade.
 Combat: Combat isn't really your thing.  You're more into mutilating helpless victims or murdering the unsuspecting  to take their place.
 Advancement: Bakeneko are highly individualistic.  No two are really alike mentally.  Probably due to the Awakening spells used on them.  Strangely enough despite this they end up studying many of the same skills.  The universe has an odd sense of humor.
Resources: Being loners, Bakenekos don't have much in the way of resources.  Unless of course you've murdered and replaced someone rich.  Dude...you really do have some emotional problems. 

BAKENEKOS IN THE WORLD
"I wonder whatever happened to lil Mookie-chan?"
 Bakeneko tend to hate humans after the way they've been treated.  So killing them and taking their place (and subsequently their stuff) only seems natural.  Or maybe the spell that Awakened them went wooby.  At any rate they seem to kill an awful lot of people.  And who knows where they get their obsession with impersonating them from.  They're weird little critters man.
 Daily Life: Being as you're absolute crackers god alone knows what you get up to during the day.  Sometimes you  do weird crap like drink lamp oil.  Sometimes when it's on fire.  Or walk on your hind legs or eat people.  Sometimes you poop severed heads.  Or at least appear to for the sake of your audience.

Did we mention you have some serious emotional problems?
 Notables: Little Mr. Kitty (CE Male Awakened Cat Cat Burglar 1/Sorcerer 5/Bakeneko 6) is a blood spattered psycho obsessed with murdering and replacing little old ladies in order to provide a better life for their beloved feline companions.  In other words he's a racist nutjob with a chip on his shoulder who thinks all pets are prisoners.
 Organizations: Most Bakeneko are loners, but every so often a few form a gang.  They rarely try to gather power or riches so much as territory.  And they defend that territory quite spectacularly.

NPC Reaction
 NPC's unload their bowels when they encounter the Bakeneko.  They consider them horrifying and unnatural, and a danger to human life.  And most are, so that probably works out for the best.

BAKENEKOS IN THE GAME
 Bakeneko are a bit spooky and alien, and it may be difficult for some players to really get into playing one.  They aren't cutesy cats.
 Adaptation: This is more for dark or horrific campaigns than silly ones.  That's not to say it's possible, but even in silly campaigns the Bakeneko tend to make people poo themselves.
 Encounters: Bakeneko can be encountered just about anywhere.  Their ability to assume peoples identities and blend in makes them quite dangerous.

Sample Encounter
EL 25: The PC's have been hired by Lady Miko to find out why her husband has suddenly become a different person.  She thinks he's been cursed.  Little does she know he's resting at the bottom of a lake, and her cat Little Mr. Kitty has taken his place.  Sadly he's a much better lover than her husband, and much nicer to the children.  Of course he may be planning to eat them...

Possessions



EPIC BAKENEKO

Hit Die: d4
Skills Points at Each  Level : 4 + int
Spells The Epic Bakeneko's Caster Level continues to increase, but it doesn't gain new spells or extra spells per day.
Bonus Feats: The Epic Bakeneko gains a Bonus Feat every 3 levels higher than 20th



New Kitty Feats

Improved Spookiness
You are now much scarier in some ways.
Prerequisites: Spookiness Class Ability.
Benefits: Instead of being Shaken for 2d6 rounds the Bakeneko can choose from the following if an opponent fails a Save: He can make it Shaken for the duration of the encounter, or Frightened for 1d6 rounds.  If the Bakeneko also has the Improved Fire Feat, and chooses to use the Illusionary Flames version instead of real fire, the opponent is also Shaken fro 1d6 rounds if it fails the Save against the flames.


Improved Reach
You are the long arm of the Kittehs!
Prerequisites: Manipulate Reach Class Ability.
Benefits: When using your Manipulate Reach Ability, your Reach can now be up to 20'.


Improved Fire
The Flames you can create with your Spookiness Ability are real now.
Prerequisites: Spookiness Class Ability (Illusionary Flames)
Benefits: Your flames are no longer a Pattern effect, and if an opponent Saves against them they are no longer immune to this Ability for 24 hours.  Instead they must make a Reflex Save (Same DC) too take half damage.  The flames now do fire damage instead of untyped, and you can decide which version to create when you use the ability.



New Epic Kitty Feats

Puppet Master
You may now control the Undead you create, and use them to torment their relatives.
Prerequisites: Animation Class Ability,
Benefits: You may Cast Control Undead at will as a Supernatural Ability (Caster Level is equal to your HD).  Duration is 1 hour per level instead of normal, and the Bakeneko can control up to 5 HD of Undead per level.


Epic Kitty Form
You can now assume virtually any Size as a cat.
Prerequisites: Kitty Form, Manipulate Reach, must be able to cast a 9th level spell from the Transmutation school, Epic Fortitude Feat
Benefits: As a Swift Action the Bakeneko can change it's size to anything from Tiny to Colossal.  This may only be done while it is in cat form.  It gains the usual changes to Str/Dex, Reach, and Natural Armor Bonus listed in the back of the Monster Manual.


Nekomata
Your tail forks, you now walk on your hind legs, and you gain significant magical power, and a taste for blood.
Prerequisites: You must be able to cast 9th Level spells, one of which must be Enchantment, and the other Necromancy, and must have either the Automatic Silent Spell or the Automatic Still Spell Feat.  You also cannot have Maneki-Neko, or Kasha.
Benefits: From now on you do 1d4 temporary Constitution damage if you successfully Pin a victim in a Grapple.  You may also cast Charm Monster and Dominate Person 5 times per day.


Maneki-Neko
You now bring luck to the unfortunate as you have reformed.  You may not be an entirely good kitty, but you aren't evil anymore.
Prerequisites: Cannot have Nekomata or Kasha, Epic Reputation, any 2 Luck Feats.
Benefits: You may now bestow luck on an individual within 60' as a Standard Action.  This luck takes varying effects, and gives the individual one of the following: If there is an ambush set for him by enemies, he automatically gets to Take 20 on his Spot Check to notice and avoid it.  If he would need to make a Saving Throw, he gets a Luck Bonus equal to your Bakeneko Level.  If he is broke, or needs money, he gains a sudden windfall of 5d6 Gold.  If he or a relative falls ill, they are the recipient of a Heal spell.  Once the individual qualifies for one of these effects, the Ability is used and must be re-applied (which many Maneki-Neko do).  This is a SUpernatural ability.


Kasha
You now become a flying demon cat that robs graves or conducts errands for Evil Demons or Deities.
Prerequisites: Improved Scent Feat, Uncanny Scent Feat, Cannot have Nekomata or Maneki-Neko, Epic Reflexes
Benefits: This Feat may be taken multiple times.  Each time it is taken you gain one of the following:

The Bakeneko needs Lucid Dreaming (MotP 203) as a class skill. :P Mostly because of the 8th-level Spookiness ability.
It's all about vision and making reality conform to your vision. By dropping a fucking house on it.

The Epic Feats are up so Bakeneko is done other than tweaking the Feats if necessary.

PIXIE KITTY


   
"Hey Mister.  Hey Mister, whatcha doin'?  You goin' ta visit the Dryads Mister?  You gonna get bent over..."

 Pizie Kitties are usually found in rural Cat Burglar Guilds in which members have had flirtations with the Fey.  Actually it's less flirtation than horrifyingly kinky cross-species sex, but flirtation sounds soo much less offensive...

BECOMING A PIXIE KITTY
The right Fey Feats will do you, along with the appropriate Cat Burglar abilities.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Class Abilities:  Kitty Form (Pixie Kitty), Enhanced Kitty Form (Winged Cat)
   Feats:  Fey Heritage, 1 Luck Feat
   Skills:  Bluff 4 ranks, Hide 4 ranks, Knowledge (Geography, Nature) 2 ranks


Class Skills
 The Pixie Kitty's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Diplomacy (Cha), Gather Information (Cha), Hide (Dex), Knowledge (Geography, Local, Nature), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), and Use Magic Device (Cha)
Skills Points at Each  Level : 6 + int

Hit Dice: d6

Code: [Select]
[b]   BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities[/b]
1. +0    +0     +2     +2    Kitty Magic
2. +1    +0     +3     +3    Fey Heritage
3. +1    +1     +3     +3    Behold the Tricksiness of Nature!
4. +2    +1     +4     +4    Kitty Magic
5. +2    +1     +4     +4    Fey Heritage
6. +3    +2     +5     +5    Behold the Tricksiness of Nature!

9. +4    +3     +6     +6    Behold the Tricksiness of Nature!
10.+5    +3     +7     +7    Honorary Fairy

Weapon Proficiencies: Pixie Kitties gain no new Armor or Weapon Proficiencies.
 
Kitty Magic (Su): At Levels 1, 4, and 7 you may choose another Kitty Magic Ability you qualify for.

Fey Heritage (Ex): At level 2 choose any spell on the Beguiler Spell List of Level 4 or below.  You may cast it as a Supernatural Ability 3/day.

At Level 5 you get to choose another spell of Level 5 or below to cast 3/day.

At Level 8 you get to choose another Spell of Level 7 or less 1/day.

Behold the Tricksiness of Nature! (Su):  At level 3 choose any spell on the Druid Spell List of Level 5 or below.  You may cast it as a Supernatural Ability 3/day.

At Level 6 you get to choose another spell of Level 6 or below to cast 3/day.

At Level 9 you get to choose another Spell of Level 8 or less 1/day.

Honorary Fairy (Ex): Your Type now changes to Fey, and you gain DR 10/Cold Iron.  You also gain Low Light Vision, and your Feline Empathy now becomes Wild Empathy (see the Druid in the PHB).

PLAYING A PIXIE KITTY
 You spend your days trying to avoid your more dangerous relatives, and messing bout with/warning intruders into the forest.  For all they listen to you, you may as well just Charm them yourself and use them for pranks. 
 Combat: Pixie Kitties aren't up for combat really.  They'd rather use some form of spell like ability to hypnotize or fool or trap them.
 Advancement: Pixie Kitties are pretty individualistic, so it's kind of hard to predict what abilities they'll have.  or what they'll want to learn next.
Resources: Pixie Kitties are usually left to their own resources, unless they're a helpful member of the Guild.  They can call on Fairy Mom of Doom, but that has it's own complications.  They want favors in return.  Favors that usually involve actions you find immoral, such as kidnapping babies, or husbands, or placing curses on people.

PIXIE KITTIES IN THE WORLD
" Ah shoulda listened to thet kitteh!  Dam me fer a fewl!"
 People are scared of you.  After all one parent isn't human, and the other one had to be crazy to hang out with them in the first place.  Which places you somewhere between human and crazy.  Some people find that unattractive.  Bastards.
 Daily Life: Much of your day is spent in pranks, goofing off, napping, and warning people of the horrible desires of your less than human relatives.  But they don't listen.  They never listen.  Fools.
 Notables:
 Organizations: Most Pixie Kitties belong to a Cat Burglar Guild, but few of them are really dedicated to theft.  it's more like a hobby than a career.

NPC Reaction
 This is an in detail description of how NPC's would perceive your class and the immediate generalization that people would give of your class.

PIXIE KITTIES IN THE GAME
 This class assumes you have inhuman parentage, and let's face it having a fairy relative can be a real pain as they like to interfere with your life.
 Adaptation: This is probably much better for a silly campaign obviously.
 Encounters: Pixies are encountered in forests with a strong Fey presence (or on errands for such).

Sample Encounter
EL 12: The PC's are traveling to see a famous Dryad Oracle, when they notice a winged cat with deely-bobber antennae sitting on a mushroom.  During polite conversation he informs them the Oracle's fee is usually harsh sadomasochistic acrobatics with the parties most attractive male.  And he may come away pregnant.  Man you really hate nature...

Mows are awakened cats.  They're just a species of Awakened Cats that breed ture and have Awakened children.  But I'll tweak so as to avoid confusion.

Current kitteh ideas:

Meowcenary: Warblade or Swordsage based class using the Feline Way

Lord of the Jungle: based on cat faced monkey forms

Yarn Kensai: Catfolk PrC

Cabbit: walking alarm system

Pink Panther: Based on the enhanced Kitty Form

Sisters of the Sphinx: cult based on hairless kitty form

Kitteh Pirate: based on seacat form

Thundercat: come on it's just has to be done somehow

Catzooka: Epic Blaster PrC

various specialty priests for the kitteh gawds

Sand Cat: desert PrC

I've also had requests for a dancing cat, 3 cross class PrC's with other homebrew, and a PrC for Wilders

I vote meowcenary.

Edit: Or Thundercat, just because.
